Poland’s Bus Service has been a family owned and operated business since the late 1940's. It was founded by Richard (Dick) Poland, who started transporting school children in the late 1940's to Athens Elementary and Somerset Academy. He used a 1946 Dodge Panel, which is sort of like a van today but with no windows.

In 1965, Dick's son Gilbert Poland, with his wife Ruthann, started their own transportation business - Poland's Bus Service. Gib started with a 1956 Chevrolet school bus, and transported children for the Town of Cornville before it was part of the SAD #54 district. Around the early 1970's, Gib and Ruthann expanded to two school buses, operating their buses in the summertime transporting for an area summer camp, as well as a local swim program. Today, Gib has a total of four school buses in operation.

In 1986, Gib and Ruthann's son Donn Poland started working in the family transportation business. Donn drove for his parents for a year before leaving to work for a paper mill in Jay. In 1992, Donn quit the mill and went back into the transportation business, acquiring his own contracts from SAD #54. Today, Donn and his Dad, along with employees, transport school children back and forth to school daily from the town of Cornville for the school district of MSAD #54. Donn also provides transportation for the Town of Caratunk. Poland's Bus Service facilitates transportation needs for several summer camps, church groups, schools, and other organizations that keep his buses running all summer long.

Donn is responding to the growing needs of Central Maine by offering a much needed chartered motor coach service. He has recently purchased a motor coach and offers chartered tours, available to any organizations that would like to hire a motor coach and driver for their transportation needs. Anyone who may be interested in this service can contact Poland's Bus Service, Inc. and receive a free estimate. He also offers trips to Foxwoods Casino, Mohegan Sun Casino, and Hollywood Slots in Bangor, New Hampshire, Boston, and New York, just to name a few destinations. Donn is also anxious to offer this service to area schools and colleges too.
